WALWORTH COUNTY, Wis. -- (WITI) -- 22-year-old Tyler Odell of East Troy faces a felony charge of first-degree reckless homicide, party to a crime in connection with the fatal shooting of David Bauspies.
According to the criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to an apartment building on Emery Ct. in the Village of East Troy around 12:30 p.m. on Monday, January 2nd for a reported gunshot victim. When officers entered the apartment, they found Robert Sterling (also charged in this case) “kneeling over” Bauspies, who suffered a single gunshot wound to the face. The complaint says “there was a revolver laying on the floor near the victim.”
Officials interviewed Odell who had been in the apartment at the time — and he stated that he “decided to show everyone his gun.” Odell told officers that “Bauspies and the defendant had both been drinking a lot of beer and were 'pretty drunk.'” Odell took out his .44 Magnum revolver, removed the six rounds and showed it to everyone.
